Quote of the Day – Barbara Holland

“I was getting sick and tired of being lectured by dear friends with their little bottles of water and their regular visits to the gym. All of a sudden, we’ve got this voluntary prohibition that has to do with health and fitness. I’m not really in favor of health and fitness.” – Barbara Holland

Quote of the Day – Lauren Bacall on Content

This is a great quote. We can be content if we have just a few things in life. We can also be satisfied but want more. All great things to think about. 🙂 I figure if I have my health, can pay the rent and I have my friends, I call it ‘content.’ – Lauren…

Quote of the Day – George Weinberg on Not Giving Up

When things are hardest, that’s when you have to press on, cause that means you’re in the lowest portion of the arc and things are going to get better. A good friend of mine is going through some difficult surgery today. I hope the surgeon’s hands are guided with skill and maybe even a little…

Quote of the Day: Chuck Swindoll on Not Giving Up

I totally had a different idea about what today’s quote would be. I had an idea of what I was searching for, what emotion I wanted to invoke and what message I wanted to convey. Then I saw this quote. It was one that made me stop and think. Anything that makes me stop and…

200 Blog Posts and 13.1 Miles Later

You’re all still with me. Really? I had this idea as I noted that I was getting close to a 200th blog post. Only two or so years into my little home on the web, I realize that I’ve found what I love about doing this; they’re my thoughts, stories, and life, unfiltered. Pen to…
